Compensation Fund Bursary 2022

Uncertainties and terrible circumstances have the ability to impact people’s life permanently.

Workers and laborers frequently sustain accidents, diseases, or impairments as a result of their work. They may be left without a source of income as a result of such events.

This is where the Compensation Fund, which is part of the South African Department of Labor, comes to their rescue. It compensates permanently disabled or injured workers, as well as casual workers, apprentices, and trainees.
